The short answer: there is no standard way to handle emails.  Every
client is different, which is why we have to hardcode them some of the

The longer explanation:

Evolution, for instance, does not accept file URIs for individual
email files and cannot open them.  It can only open emails that are
"managed" by Evolution, and it has its own URI scheme for accessing
emails whether they are local mbox or remote IMAP messages.
Thunderbird has a similar setup.

Kmail, on the other hand, can open individual files.  But I am not
sure how it opens IMAP messages.  And I think it doesn't support mbox.
 I'm not a Kmail user so I don't know for sure.

This seems like a reasonable solution.  We'll happily take a patch for
that.  Otherwise, a bug in Bugzilla would be best to make sure that it
isn't forgotten.
